So, this winter has been a little ridiculous.

Last month's snowfall in the Maritimes broke records and schools were closed due to snow as recently as Monday, after spring had technically arrived.

Winter has done its damnedest to ensure that Canadians have no fun whatsoever.

But Canadians are nothing if not resilient.

Here are a few ways Canadians have proven that winter could not take their fun away.

They held a dance party on a frozen river.


They gave up waiting for the flowers and made them bloom anyway.
